Behance.net and my cover and ad designs

I recently opened an account at Behance.net (http://www.behance.net/thelinebreak) to share some of my book and journal cover designs and ads and posters that I create. This site is for people who do such things plus typographers and other creative individuals.

At the same time, I’ve been preparing Redactions: Poetry & Poetics issue 14 for publication, and I’ve made a few ads for the journal. At Behance.net, I posted those ads and wrote a little story about each one. I like this. I like being able to share this kind of information and talking about it. I wish I was better at it. I really want to and should take some nighttime graphic design courses somewhere. I’m self-taught, and I’ve gone as far as I can.

So if you want to learn more about some of cover designs and ad designs, stop by http://www.behance.net/thelinebreak every now and then.

Here’s a taste of my recent addition.

Pure Elysium Ad

As you recall, I also do layout and Design for Palettes & Quills Press. Their most recent  book is Michael Meyerhofer’s Pure Elysium (http://amzn.to/ooazVu). Since I’m also responsible for advertising and marketing, in part, I needed to make two ads. One for the tremendous website VerseDaily.com. (It’s like an online anthology of the best poems that appear in the most recent poetry journals and books.) The size restrictions for this are small – 0.5″ x 0.333″. At first I tried to make this ad at that size, but, man, that wasn’t working. So I made the ad at 5″ x 3.33″ and then shrunk it down. That worked fine.

Then I had to make a bigger one, 4.5″ x 8″, for Redactions: Poetry & Poetics issue 14. What I like about this ad is that there is the perfect amount of space in the upper left-hand corner for the image of the book cover. It’s not really covering up anything. And you can still see the main action of the cover art. It was also a good way to get larger viewing of the cover, despite it being grayscale, though I like the effects.

The cover art by Peter Davis is titled “The People Make Love.”
